Tue Jul 17, 2007 07:52

The Bigger Picture. Big Screen, Manchester

The Deadline for submissions to The Bigger Picture has been extended to the 25 July. Don’t miss this great opportunity to get your work shown on Big Screen, Manchester.

The Bigger Picture is a Cornerhouse project, run in partnership with BBC Manchester, established to exhibit selections of the best moving image work being produced today. Standing outside of a traditional gallery context, the programme offers a platform for artists’ film & video, short films, and artistic community moving image. It is a curated programme that screens and commissions work by established and emerging practitioners, whilst also calling for entries up to five times a year, in an attempt to seek out exciting and original moving image works that will capture the imaginations of what is an essentially fleeting, yet diverse audience.

The Big Screen, Manchester is a 25 square metre video screen with full sound system situated in Exchange Square, a public area regenerated after the IRA bomb in 1996, that has an estimated daily footfall of 50,000 people. The Manchester screen broadcasts 24 hours a day, with sound muted at night
